The victims, after their houses collapsed, were forced to flee from the areas to join their relatives while others slept in the schools, mosques and opened places. The situation has they say, has put their lives in danger.
Some of the affected victims explained to PrimeNewsGhana that "we don't have places to sleep, not to talk of our personal belongings. We don't know where to keep them. We are scared thieved may come and take part
Assemblyman for the Area, Mohammed Somed said, considering the number of victims affected by the rainstorm, it is out of hand for the communities alone to handle.
“We are appealing to central government and donor agencies to come to the aid of the victims”, he urged.
